China confirms second human death from bird flu

China on Wednesday reported its second confirmed human fatality from bird flu.

The 35-year-old woman, a farmer identified only by the surname Xu, died Tuesday after developing a fever and pneumonia-like symptoms following contact with sick and dead poultry, the Health Ministry confirmed.

Tests concluded the woman was positive for the H5N1 strain of the virus, according to the official Xinhua News Agency.

The woman lived in Xiuning County in Anhui province in eastern China, Xinhua said. It gave no further details.

China's first confirmed bird flu death was also a woman from Anhui.

A 12-year-old girl in the central province of Hunan, who was recorded as a suspected case, also died. Her body was cremated before tests could confirm whether she had the virus.

The country's only other confirmed bird flu case was Hunan girl's 9-year-old brother, who fell ill but recovered, the AP reports.
